SCOTCH EGGS

SCOTCH EGGS

By all rights Scotch eggs should be a lot more popular than they are. Hard boiled eggs, yolks just barely firm, are wrapped in sausage meat then breaded and fried. What could be bad? I suppose it’s the frying part that holds most people back. But why professional kitchens don’t whip up Scotch eggs along […]

Carol Stuckhardt's Chocolate Malt Cheesecake

Carol Stuckhardt’s Chocolate Malt Cheesecake

There’s not a heck of a lot to say about this dessert other than it’s chocolate. It’s a cheesecake.  It’s got malt in it. What could be bad?  Unlike most cheesecakes this recipe doesn’t call for sour cream.   I’m not sure if that’s a virtue or a vice considering the sweetened condensed milk that […]

GINGER LEMON HONEY JAM

GINGER LEMON HONEY JAM

It’s December 21, the home stretch of holiday gift jam-making. Time to whip up a batch of Ginger Lemon Honey Jam. This one is a real zinger. Bits of candied ginger float in a honey citrus gel flecked with lemon and orange zest. A morning eye-opener indeed. Great on Greek yogurt too, if you’re looking […]
